michelle obama come and they were standing at the reception for all of the g20 leaders and they were first of all they were sort of comparing their shoes, then they turned to the ladies that were waiting standing right over there and they started to sort of demonstrate how tall she was and how short she was and they quite naturally as they were showing and demonstrating this they put their arms around each other and is long been said you shouldn't touch the queen although many people have over the years and she's become much more relaxed about. they helped and wrote, shoulder but nobody took offense except the british tabloid press who decided to make a big deal out of it. but i talk to people that buckingham palace and the said everybody was in a good mood that day, and it was kind of in the spirit of how everybody felt. so nobody took offense. anything else? okay. thank you very much for coming.

girls who are underachieving now that the president, barack obama and michelle obama are in the white house, how could you not recognize how hard and how important it is to work hard to live up to those aspirations? i can see documentary after the gentry, special report after special report ask young people now that you see this first family in the white house will if you think about getting married one day? as if we are so pathological and dysfunctional that it would take the symbolism of a black family in the white house to even have the thought that one might actually decide to marry one day. [applause] as a side note marriage is a declining institution in the world. and yet we, that is, those over african-americans bear the burden of somehow representing the decline of marriage. in 1970 as many of you know, 30% was the then crisis number for the female households, children born to single women. they produced the moynihan report and it continues to shape over the next 40 years of the policies around poverty in this country. the rate of white children born to single women at the tim
